Content

The Masters in Land and Hydrographic Surveying with Work Placement will introduce you to the surveying discipline and prepare you for employment in the industry. Engineering and land survey are fundamental to the design, construction and navigation of infrastructure projects from small to national scale such as buildings, road and rail networks.

Hydrographic Surveyors contribute to safety of navigation and port management for seas, rivers and lakes, and underwater infrastructure projects such as pipelines and offshore wind turbines. This programme is ideal if you are seeking employment in the geospatial industry to support construction and mapping projects both onshore and offshore.

This version of the programme includes a 6 month work placement in industry, instead of the normal MSc project.

Entry Requirements

Normally a good Honours degree (2.1) in a relevant field such as civil engineering, earth or environmental science, geography, mathematics, physics, or planning, but others with some mathematical background will be considered.

Those with a degree in geomatics or a closely related subject or who meet the age and experience criteria of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors can use the programme as a route to a professional qualification or preparation for a research degree and may, under special circumstances, be given exemption from some aspects of the programme.
